Anthony Brink’s early training was as a mould maker, and in ceramic sculpture. However, it was his apprenticeship and subsequent work with the artist potter Gwyn Hanssen Pigott which cemented his embrace of the potters art. Since the 1990’s Anthony has worked independently as a studio-based potter. He produces work for sale, exhibition and commission from his workshop located in Blackheath in the Blue Mountains, NSW. Anthony’s work reflects a visual language of form, often pared back to a point of abstraction, but always identifiable in its functional purpose.
Anthony is a qualified teacher, and is currently the Ceramics studio program co-ordinator and teacher for the City of Sydney's Pine Street Creative Arts Centre.
